Alice Harrison

Mixed Media

Working in layers, technically, intellectually and spiritually I create images and sensations of movement, color, harmony and joy. Much of my work is inspired by the various materials I have collected, as well as by traditional materials in my studio.

My work encompasses a variety of mediums – oil, acrylic, water, prints, found papers and objects, image transfer and encaustic. In each artwork there may be one medium, two or many media combined in one piece. Inspiration comes from the inside – based on my personal distillation of the external world.

Allan Cyprys

Collage, Drawing, Painting, Photography, Sculpture

CITY LIGHTS by Allan Cyprys

The Asian culture has always fascinated me. My philosophy of “less is more”, has guided me in the kind of artwork that I create. In 2009, I received a NYS Council on the Arts grant from ArtsWestchester for my project, “Westchester’s Fantasy Landscape in the Year 2059”. The subject was my concerns of maintaining a balance between conservation and development that will sustain the county into the future.

I’m also intrigued with buildings that are created by combining traditional materials (metal, glass, stone, brick, etc.) with the new, (plants, recycled materials and lighting.) Wanting to capture some of these unique visual properties I began to alter and intensify the image’s color while using Photoshop. This enables me to use a more intense color palette. I work in an intuitive way. One step leads to another until the whole image comes into focus. I find the process magical.

Amy R Farrell

Printmaking / Mixed Media

My Art making is inspired by the breathtaking beauty of the natural world. The vistas, flora and fauna are frequent subjects of my prints and paintings. The challenge, complexity and hands on involvement of the creative process bring me comfort and joy. It is the deep respect I feel for our fragile environment that I wish to share and encourage in others.

Barbara Masterson

Oil Paint on Canvas and Wolff Pencil on Illustration Board

Art is like a serum, transforming its audience for good or ill. As I paint, the play of light has taken my breath away.

Migrant workers came into view. They have transformed my vision.

Familiar shapes in fields and orchards, migrant workers toil in the Hudson Valley doing jobs most Americans won't, earning modest wages, sometimes risking deportation.

Hard at work, they summon our attention and invite us to come closer, to see their labor and their humanity.

Who are they? Can you see them?

It’s possible for society to confer invisibility on a group. It’s convenient; if the group is invisible, we relieve ourselves of concern about health care, working conditions, pesticides, housing, lack of ability to get their own food.

What is life like for them? What role do we play in keeping them unseen? My work can expand our perceptions of these workers. If only by their images in my paintings, the viewer will come to see these persons for the vital role they have in our lives.

a painting by Bärbel Thiel

Growing up in and with nature shaped me as a person and an artist. Nature gives me power and inspiration. I’ve always drawn as long as I can remember. I try to tell stories. My favorite subjects are animals, especially birds. My preferred techniques are drawing, etching, woodcut, spraying, and silkscreen. All of these techniques are also combined in my collages.

Bridge by Basha Ruth Nelson
Wave by Basha Ruth Nelson

My work is intuitive. Whether sculpture, construction or installation, the hallmark is the creation of unity between form and space in which my pieces live. My sculptures, constructions in paper, stainless steel, aluminum, and copper, engage the viewer through surface and scale, looking at ordinary materials in a new way. Currently, I create interactive installations and performances as part of my ongoing Freedom Project.

I received my Master of Arts Degree from New York University (NYU). Public and private collections include: Riverfront Green Park, Peekskill, NY; Hammond Museum; Woodstock Artists Association and Museum; Brooklyn Art Library; US Embassy, Nassau, Bahamas; among others.

Beth Barry

 Acrylic Paints

When I first flew in an airplane, I was struck by the color and shapes created by the light from the sun. It influenced everything, infusing the palette of the landscape with what felt like a supernatural light. As the plane moved, the images moved too, bouncing and swaying in their own rhythmic way. This was exciting to me and has informed my artwork. Light, color, and movement are basic elements of my paintings. My work has also been influenced by the coastline of Massachusetts and the beauty of the beach. My paintings are places of happiness.

Beth Haber

Mixed Media, Assemblage on Mylar and Landscape Installations

Beth Haber-Al Nowak-The Ship.jpeg

I have a persistent interest in the co-tenancy of text and image in its multiple conveyances as scroll, book, screen or “reading” the natural world. As language itself migrates from the analog to the digital, I look to reconcile the earlier meanings with the present tense where attachment still signifies human connection and space remains open between imagination and description.

Her photography has been published in major magazines. Her current long-term project is the installation art “Heart@Heart” – Putting love in public spaces, by visualizing the international symbol for heart, using natural or recycled materials found in that locality. The symbolism of the Heart universally expresses love. The Heart is individually interpretative, but it cuts across all cultural, ethnic, religious and social separation. It is a symbol of love and unity. Her effort is to put love into everything she does, in every project, including the Virtual Exhibition of the Hammond.

Byron Keith Byrd

Painting

I Heart NY by Byron Keith Byrd
CENTERSTAGE by Byron Keith Byrd

My inspiration is derived from numerology, archaic symbols, and rhythmic, primitive petroglyphs. While I may be considered an abstract expressionist, my goal is to create work that transpires any given time-frame.
Some of my canvases may conjure elements of prehistoric cave markings while others hopefully transport ones thoughts or emotions into a world yet comprehended.
